Like Father Like Son

Project Inspiration:

This project is the most important of all the ones I will ever do, because it's my tribute to my dad who was one of the most amazing musicians I have known in my lifetime. Most of the project will be my own music that I have weaved into it, the old and the new. I was raised on Traditional Country & Bluegrass Music, but I was a teenager during the seventies and became a rock player because of it.

 

Blending the two felt like a natural thing to me so that is my goal for this project. Of course this project would not be an honest to goodness tribute if it doesn't contain a couple of my versions of my dad's biggest hits. Scary to do cause the dude is a tough act to follow, but I will give it my best! No date on release because I am taking my time on this one. What you hear in the player below may or may not be on the CD. Just haven't made up my mind yet.

A Work In Progress

Song Details & Videos

'Like Father Like Son'


Inspiration For The Song: If you ask anyone in my family they would most likely agree that I am more like my father than my brother or sisters. I'm not saying that I am anywhere near the musician that he was, but my passion for music is the same as his. Music is a part of my DNA. Music is in my head 24/7. If I could write all the ideas that are stored in my brain, it would take me a lifetime because they just keep coming. The title of the song says it all. Lyrics:




'Taking Chances'


Inspiration For The Song: This just popped in my head one afternoon. I just started thinking about how awkward it would be if a guy finally finds the woman of his dreams, and it is his boss. Awkward! Lyrics:




'This Life We're Living'


Inspiration For The Song: I wrote this song at a time when Sharon's and my life was so hectic we could barely control it. Glad that time has passed! Lyrics:




'I'm A Country Boy'


Inspiration For The Song: This came rolling out of my head one evening in the studio. Not sure if there was anything that really inspired the song! Lyrics:




'I've Got You'


Inspiration For The Song: This song is about my wife. Pretty self explanatory! Lyrics:
